For sale here is a RARE set of three vintage 1960s 70s handmade copper enamel on wood platforms abstract modernist conceptualist sculptural objects by Long Beach California professor artist sculptor and metalsmith Dieter Muller-Stach. Each of the three are copper enamel in irregular shapes that are attached with screws to wood bases. The wood bases were cut to match the copper enamel at top. One of the wood bases is flat at top, the other two are cut on an angle so the copper enamel is tilted to one side. The largest (red/black) is 7-3/4" by 4-3/4 and weighs 297 grams, the medium (greens) is 7-1/2" by 4-1/2" and weighs 241 grams, the smallest (green/orange) is 6-3/8" by 3-1/8" and weighs 248 grams. The artist was born in 1935 in Germany where he studied jewelry-making and metal-smithing at the Art Academy in Munich. He taught in Ghana for six years before coming to CSULB in Long Beach California to teach jewelry-making in the Art Department in 1968 where he joined Al Pine among others at the forefront of the studio jewelry movement in the LA area. His work was featured in California Design 11 in 1971, and in Oppi Untracht's encyclopedic book, "Jewelry Concepts and Technology", among other publications, and his art is in both private and museum collections. He retired in 2003, and passed away in 2011, and this set of three was purchased directly from his estate shortly after. Unmarked. There are some irregularities to the enamel which I believe are original not damage as shown in the photos. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
